Visitors to the place are offered a multitude of avenues by which to make their journey but the more daring should take on the ascent by the Hatton path and the decent by the Ratnapura trail. Traditionally Adam’s Peak attracts travellers from all walks of life during the period of December to April. Those deciding to call at the mountain should be aware that visits during such a time can get crowded. If you select to make your way up during the night, the steps would lead to rest stops and stalls that serve refreshments that would be more than welcome to beat the chilly weather.

However it is the stone tablet that covers the sacred footprint of the Buddha found at the summit which attracts devotees in large numbers.
